§ 20. Viscount SANDON
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what the relationship will be between the new Colonial Research Committee and the recently created Civil Research Committee?
§ Mr. AMERY
The proposed Colonial Agricultural Research Council, the establishment of which was recommended by the Committee on Agricultural Research and Administration in the non-self governing dependencies and more recently still by the Colonial Office Conference, will be a permanent body. No doubt the council will, as soon as it is constituted, take the necessary steps to ensure co-operation with the other research committees and organisations in this country, including the Committee of Civil Research, which has from time to 1469 time by means of its sub-committees dealt with questions in which the Colonies are interested.
§ Mr. HARRIS
What relation have these various committees to the Imperial Institute? Are they linked up?
